 Tanks A Lot

"If your boat is constructed so that tank removal is possible without major disassembly of the interior, make the repair with the tank removed. The repair will then be fairly straightforward. Since most diesel fuel tanks are made of aluminum or black iron, a welding shop can repair either material with relatively little expense. First remove the inspection cover and thoroughly clean the interior of the tank. While you're at it, inspect it for pitting and other potential future problems. If the tank doesn't have an inspection cover, now would be an excellent time to install one. If you ever get bad fuel or have a sludge buildup in your tank, you will be glad you have access to the interior of your tank to clean it."
